My photo

With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

Southern Highlands and the South Coast. Feb. 2018

We spent a night at the Mercure Gerringong Resort on the south coast, which Craig and Andria had given to Lynn for her 70th birthday (just the night, not the whole resort). The next night we stayed down at Batemans Bay then came home via Braidwood and Goulburn.
A week prior to that we spent a night at Mittagong on the Southern Tablelands and have include the photos from that trip here as well.
Thank you Craig and Andria (and girls)

The caged off 'Wishing Well', carved into the rock was a favourite
stopping place for honeymooners in the old days.

This beautiful Golden/Yellow-headed Fly (Amenia sp ?) was
resting on the cage around the 'wishing well'.

We had a great view of the wetlands from our balcony at the Mercure Gerringong Resort.

Oh yes, they had a pool as well.

We spent a lot of time here (on the balcony that is).

The Boat Harbour was used by cedar cutters who shipped their timber out as early as the 1840s.

A memorial to 'the ships that called into Gerringong, the men that
sailed them and our pioneers of that time, 1810-1895'.

Somewhere to rest your head.

"Ah good, my favourite bit is still there"

Sunrise from our balcony.

Can you see the face of the hairy 'Bunyip', and his cat, that live in the wetland?

As usual, I'm up first.
